Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

There have been so many amazing changes that have occurred in my everyday life since getting my vision worked on! I no longer have to worry about my glasses, I can swim, hike, surf and enjoy every moment with my Ohana without worrying about missing a special second due to my bad eye sight! My over all quality of life has improved immensely. And not to mention I feel 10 years younger not having to wear my glasses all day! I am extremely pleased with my new vision provided by the team and staff at Aloha laser vision!

How was Your Experience:

My experience with Dr. Faulkner and the team at Aloha Laser vision has been nothing but fantastic, from the environment, to the cleanliness and even the amazing staff were nothing but helpful & so accommodating. I had same day surgery done, they helped me with all financial aspects of my surgery and made sure I was as comfortable and up to date on the entire procedure. All and every question I had was answered, I had an overall amazing experience and appreciate everyone one at Aloha Laser vision who helped me through my surgery! Big Mahalo to the whole team there!

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

How has vision correction changed your life? It truly is a miracle! My only regret is not doing earlier in my life. It's only been two weeks since the procedure and I am still an awe of the reality of not having to wear my glasses or contacts. I recommend that anyone considering the procedure, to just do it! Talk with the doctors and representatives at Aloha Laser Vision and they can address all of your needs and concerns. They are truly the best :)

How was Your Experience:

I am so grateful to the Aloha Laser Vision Team, specifically Dr. Neola Nipoor and Dr. Elizabeth Hanohano-Hong, and the counselors for making me feel so well cared for. I was really nervous prior to get the Lasik procedure, but the team did a through examination and walked me through the entire process. All of the pre-operative visits, the operation itself, and the post-operative visit was a seamless process and recommend anyone considering it...to just do it or at least inquire.

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

I loved everything about getting my vision corrected. Growing up my vision deterred me from feeling comfortable about myself. I felt insecure and unsafe sometimes. When i had my procedure my life changed so positively. By getting my vision corrected i was able to feel safe driving especially not having to worry about dried out contacts or glasses. I could actually swim under water, wake up and easily see my babies after giving birth. It has been an amazing experience. I am truly so thankful for Aloha Laser vision.

How was Your Experience:

My experience with Dr. Faulkner and the aloha laser vision team has been amazing. I am truly appreciative for all the help and service. Scheduling was so easy and the actual procedure was so fast. I had to come back for a correction and they made it so accommodating and easy.

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

My favorite thing about vision correction is the sense of a new life. It has boosted my self esteem and has helped my anxiety immensely. It’s hard to explain, but I felt a shift in my mental clarity.

How was Your Experience:

Most of my life, my vision has been 2200/2300, and I felt like it has crippled me. It’s been a constant worry, always in the back of my mind. One of my biggest fears during my 22 years of glasses and contact lenses was not being able see at night if anyone broke into my home, or the sense of helplessness if one of my contacts fell out while driving or doing something else important. I am in disbelief that my vision is now 20/15 and I don’t have to worry about traveling with extra contacts, fogging my glasses up with my masks, or spending obscene amounts of money the rest of my life on new glasses and contacts. I feel like I have so much more motivation to do the things I want to do. I truly feel like a new person, and despite being terrified of the procedure, the team at Aloha Laser Vision has kept me calm, and guided me with care and true concern. It made the super fast procedure easy and worth every cent. And those oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were so delicious!

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

I cannot choose one best thing about LASIK. This has changed my life. I had mono done and before when I wore my contacts I couldn’t read up close. It was really affecting my job. I also did not want to wear my glasses because they fog up with the mask. But now I can function without either. I also love how much easier it is for me to get up and just go I am very active and this has changed so it is easier to do that.

How was Your Experience:

I was very nervous about getting this done. I have a fear of getting any procedures done. But they team here made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

The best thing about vision correction is that I can finally see when I wake up in the morning! I took my good vision for granted before. Not having to put contacts in every morning and then take them out at the end of the day has been great. I don't have to worry about reordering contacts every few months, and I don't have to worry about getting a new pair of glasses every time my vision changes.

How was Your Experience:

I absolutely love Aloha Laser Vision, Dr. Faulkner, and his entire team!

Last month at my annual eye check-up, my doctor told me that I'm finally eligible for LASIK and she referred me to Dr. Faulkner at Aloha Laser Vision. As soon as I got in my car, I called ALV and scheduled a consultation. Everyone (and I mean *everyone*!) is so kind, friendly, and professional. I felt at ease with everyone from the front desk, assistants, optometrists, and surgeon...I even ended up scheduling an appointment for aesthetic services! (Btw the staff on the aesthetics side are also amazing!) I felt like I was being taken care of by the best and they were so kind to explain the process and after-care. I've been referring everyone I know who has been thinking about LASIK to go to ALV :) Mahalo to everyone at Aloha Laser Vision!

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

Gosh I don't have one favorite thing about my experience at Aloha Laser Vision that I love, I have many, here are a few. First and foremost I can travel without contacts!! It was such a pain to travel before because my contacts would get dried out so I would have to take them off and then put on my glasses which I hated!! My first trip after getting surgery was simply heaven!! I can also go running without having to put on contacts which has made life so much easier and simpler. Everyday I wake up and get into my car to drive to work, I am so thankful. LOL, I am always checking my vision to make sure that this is real. People never understand how happy I am just to be able to see clearly without contacts or glasses!!

How was Your Experience:

The Aloha Laser Vision Team was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. Every single person was absolutely fabulous. Dr. Nikpoor was amazing and extremely pleasant through the entire process. The staff and doctors always made me feel welcome and answered all my questions. I appreciate every single person there who made my experience so wonderful.

Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

I have absolutely adored being able to wake up and see my fiancé clearly, and to be able to watch the sunrise without having to put on glasses or contacts. I love that we were able to take a trip to Big Island without the fuss of worrying about extra contacts or packing cleaning solutions. Being able to birdwatch on Big Island and spot rare species with better than perfect vision (20/15) has been in INCREDIBLE blessing. Mahalo nui loa Dr. Faulkner.

How was Your Experience:

Dr. Faulkner and his team made my surgery experience seamless, easy, and assuring. I could not be more impressed with the better than perfect vision I have received as a result! I will be a proud referral source for Aloha Laser Vision for many years to come! Mahalo nui loa!

Panoptix lens implanted on left eye for 20x20 vision, 2019
Favorite thing about Vision Correction:

The procedure was flawless and the staff was great once it got going. The waiting was the only thing that took a while.

How was Your Experience:

I chose Aloha Laser Vision after I did my research and Dr. Faulkner was one of the more experience in doing the new multi-focus Panoptix lens implant. I couldn't be happier. Keep up the good work Aloha Laser Vision!
